Titel:
A phantom assessment of cold stomach-related artifacts in myocardial perfusion imaging. 
Abstract:
AIM: To study the effect of a'cold stomach', caused by either air or water, on Tl-201 and Tc-99m myocardial perfusion single-photon emission computed tomography (MPS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: A stomach insert was created in a thorax phantom. MPS was performed with Tl-201 or Tc-99m. MPS was recorded with an empty stomach, a stomach filled with 0.5 or 1 l of water, or with 0.5 or 1 l of air. For Tc-99m, transmission scans for attenuation correction (AC) were also obtained. RESULTS: In Tl-201 MPS, f...    »
